JLL Capital Markets announced that it arranged the $104 million refinance of City Gardens, a recently developed multihousing property located in San Francisco, California.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, Panoramic Interests, to secure the three-year, floating-rate loan through Ready Capital.

City Gardens consists of 200 two-, four- and five-bedroom micro-units, boasting strategic, efficient design. The property totals 152,445 square feet and features fully furnished bedrooms and living areas, expansive windows with beautiful city views, 9’ ceilings and was sustainably built; including high-efficiency lighting and plumbing, laminated heat resistant glass and energy recovery ventilation.

Located at 333 12th St. in the Western Mission/SOMA neighborhood, City Gardens is positioned near many shopping and grocery options, including Costco and Trader Joe’s, and various dining, bars and cafes. Additionally, the property is nestled between two burgeoning areas, including Hayes Valley; a revitalized neighborhood filled with high-end boutiques and vibrant restaurants and watering holes; and the Design District; which features renowned designer and furnishing showrooms.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower was led by Senior Managing Director Charles Halladay and Managing Directors Alex Witt and Jordan Angel, Associate Jonah Aelyon and Analyst Lauren Mezzanotte.

Patrick Kennedy, CEO of Panoramic Interests, says, “Alex Witt, Jordan Angel and the JLL team did an amazing job in a challenging market. We were grateful to have them on our team.”

“Panoramic Interests has built an extraordinary high-density multi-housing building uniquely positioned to capture San Francisco’s renter demand,” says Angel. “The San Francisco JLL Capital Markets team feels fortunate to have been able to partner with the Panoramic Interests team to secure a refinance with Ready Capital, allowing for the lease up of City Gardens. This was a great loan closing with a best in class developer and lender.”
